About the course

What Is An Executive Immersion Program?

The digitization of energy is well underway with a wave of startups leveraging emerging technologies to create a greener, cleaner planet and move our economies away from fossil fuels. Advances in batteries and other energy storage solutions, renewables, nanomaterials and data analytics, meanwhile, all have a role to play in the energy mix of the future.

Our immersion program will educate you in all of these trends, connect you with the companies pioneering groundbreaking solutions and inspire you to turn your own company into a leading innovator capable of long-term growth.

What Will I Learn?

Our immersion program is made up of sessions with leading companies operating at the forefront of major trends in the energy space such as:

Cleantech

Cleantech encompasses a wide range of technologies and practices, all designed to boost energy efficiency with minimal environmental impact. Bloom Energy, with over $800 million raised in venture capital, offers on-site power generation systems that can use a wide variety of inputs to generate electricity. Flow Laboratories is automating and digitizing water data collection and reporting to create smarter buildings while Cobalt Technologies is developing technology for the next generation of biofuels.

Solar

Among the biggest sources of new, clean energy, solar power is an area of diverse innovation activity deserving of closer study in its own right. SolarCity is among the leaders in this vertical, providing solar energy services to homeowners, businesses, government, and non-profits. SunPower, a manufacturer of high-performance solar electric systems, is another recognised name in the space. Aurora Solar, meanwhile, is taking solar energy in more tech-focused direction by developing cloud-based software for the solar industry.

Renewable Energy

The renewable energy sector as a whole is moving toward a more technology-enabled future, with startups such as Juix, a shared economy platform for portable power banks. Planet OS, meanwhile, is delivering digitization through its big data infrastructure for renewable energy companies while Ubiquitous Energy is building and commercializing its proprietary technology to make any surface capable of converting ambient light into useful electricity.

Clean Energy

Stretching across the spectrum from consumer goods to heavy industry, the clean energy subsector includes organizations such as Potter Drilling, a drilling technology developer that enables clean energy solutions such as geothermal systems. Agilewaves, meanwhile, is an energy monitoring, automation and management platform run by former NASA scientists, while Clean Wave Technologies is developing electric drive systems for electric and hybrid electric vehicles.

Subject To Change Without Prior Notice

Day 1 THE DIGITAL DISRUPTION OF ENERGY

How is the energy sector going digital and where is this journey taking us? Why is it exploding now and what are the forces driving its expansion? These are the questions we answer on day 1 of our immersion program on The Future of Energy. We explain how entrepreneurs are capitalizing on the emergence of new technologies and trends to build a cleaner, greener future less reliant on fossil fuels. We meet companies such as Acre Homes, builders of zero-energy connected homes; Sunpreme, developers of photovoltaic cells and panels; and Natron Energy, a company building a new type of battery for industry. Other possible participating companies: Trolysis, Efuel, Cassatt, Microvi Biotechnologies, Hadera

Day 2 EXPLOITING MARKET NICHES

The journey continues on day two with an exploration of the limits of the disruption to the energy sector as they exist today. How many areas are seeing radical change? What is the nature of this change and how fast is it moving? We answer these questions through visits to startups operating in a wide range of niches. Possible visits include Tachyus, a technology platform for the oil and gas industry, Bloom Energy, makers of an on-site power generation system, and Pricelock, an online platform for the buying and selling of energy-related products via auctions and direct listings. Other potential participating companies: Serious Energy, Scifiniti, Ultra Solar Technology, Quantumscape

Day 3 EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES FOR ENERGY

Day three of the immersion program is dedicated to the technologies fueling the disruption of the energy sector. We hear from experts in artificial intelligence and machine learning, robotics, blockchain and internet of things to learn what these technologies can currently do and what they will offer in the future. We visit companies such as Greenvity Communications, V5 Systems and Davra to see how they use emerging technologies to create competitive advantages and provide innovative, market-disrupting products and services. Other possible participating companies: Fueltime, Biofuelbox, Brite Solar, Optony, Planet OS, Burq Solutions

Day 4 CORPORATE INNOVATION IN ENERGY

Having seen and heard how digital is disrupting the retail industry on days 1 to 3, on day 4 of our immersion program we challenge attendees to turn words into action. Participatory workshops with leading Silicon Valley experts on design thinking, design sprints, venture capital and open innovation provide executives with the blueprints and frameworks they need to deliver innovation within their own organization. We analyze how governments and legacy companies are reacting to demands for a carbon-neutral future and look at the steps they are taking to reach that goal in collaboration with the startup ecosystem. We visit big tech companies such as Amazon, Google and Apple to see what role they will play in the energy industry and learn how they maintain cultures of constant innovation. Other possible participating companies: Ventana Ecogreen, Evrus, Ridecell, SunPods, Lumenir, US Renewables

Day 5 THE FUTURE OF ENERGY

What’s next for the digital disruption of energy? Day 5 brings the program to a close with its sights firmly set on the future. We learn about trends still in their infancy and meet the companies seeking to capitalize on those trends. Possible visits include Solpro, to see the future of portable solar power generation, and Caban Systems, makers of modular energy storage solutions run by software and machine learning algorithms. Will our homes one day be powered exclusively by clean energy? Could artificial intelligence guide our energy usage and drive efficiency gains? We discuss these and other pressing questions and find out which areas of the energy industry will be reimagined next thanks to emerging technologies. Other possible participating companies: Reylabs, Hyve Solutions, Cyanto, Domatic, Encored, Etagen
